Minerals from all over the world

Today I send you my new mineral catalogue 1 / 2019. It contains the new IMA approved minerals Hydrokenopyrochlore, Alterite, Martinandresite, Petersite- (La) and the Potassic-Jeanlouisite I have discovered, as well as a range of very rare species such as Aldridgeite, Apexite, Becketite, Bobmeyerite, Buttgenbachite, Dmisteinbergite, Jorgensonite, Kamarizaite, Ningyoite, Poudretteite, Refikite, Ringwoodite, Rouaite, Santaclaraite, Skippenite, Watatsumiite and some others.
From the copper-cobalt deposit Tenke-Fungurume in the south-eastern Congo, a sensational new find comes from the world's best Rouaite crystals, as well as outstanding Buttgenbachite and Paramelaconite.
From Germany there are pretty specimens with Tangdanite from the Thuringian Forest, native Zinc crystals and Tephroite from a new find in the Harz Mts.. Other new finds are probably the world's best Zunyite crystals from Iran, Porpezite from Venezuela, Kogarkoite from the Lake Natron in Tanzania, green opal from Turkey, Poudretteite from Myanmar, Humboldtine from Montana, very unusual quartz crystals and Rossmanite from Brazil and bi-collored Dravite crystals from Tanzania.
Another highlight are beautiful Wulfenite specimens from ancient finds in Darwin / California, Jorgensenite from Greenland, some rarities such as Dmisteinbergite, Nambulite and Osumilite- (Mg) from Japan,
